Pretty much in this order...

* Geometry - ATA and BH need to fit me or it's a waste of time. For me that's 32-35" ATA with 7" or so of BH. That combo allows me to anchor the way I shoot best and provides a natural head position that works with the string angle.
* Cam design - want something that rolls over well with a good wall. Not too aggressive, with ability to customize holding weight.
* Tune-ability - is it a cam design with cable/string setup that I know I can tune.
* Noise / hand shock - you can quiet down almost any bow these days with the right accessories. I'm not worried about hand shock so much, but I want to get it quiet if I'm hunting with it.
* IBO rating - speed isn't super important, but no reason to not take advantage of it if the other stuff works

U can get more outa dem bows and arrows as u thank. People talk bout getn new strangs but tha one on my bow will still a sleng um like it did when my grandpapy gave it to me 25yrs ago. I did notice alot of other little strings comin off the main strang for sum rezon. I noticed 2 bolts missing at the end of the stick that holds some round thangs. I found some others that kinda looked like em and the excess room in there I filled with loc tight. I customized the grip with tennessee chrome (that im waitin on the patent to come thru). I keep hearing this cracking sound in them straight pieces bove ur hand. Bout 5 yrs ago a small crack showed up in one of em and I used two bottles of gorilla glue to get er right. When I shoot tho some arrows go fast and some go slow. Ive been tryin to fig out why for yrs. Only thing I can figure is these different numbers on the sticks I guess means some are older than others and arnt as
sturdy. These cites I gots ar amazing. My cousin who doctors say needs more people to spend time with him got us a keggar sumbody hadnt finish and the lights went off as he wus just about to light a thag with a matcstick in a Larger matckbox. Dang that Moonshine really shines and opens ur mind. We cut a hole in that box zip tied and glued it to the side. We got a 1x5 horizontal inch of view with 6 small nails held onto the inside by big leauge chew . That away is was easier to make adjustments. Im thinkin about handing this down to someone who would appreciate such a killing maching. I just dont have the time anymore. Theres tons of screws and bolts that came with it but hey
If I cant be fixed with tennessee chrome or a hammer then it need to be scrap. Come to think of it I think those bolts and nuts were from my wifes front breaks im am deinhancing that lazy hogs car. Countin the days it falls right off. Well hellluva gettin late aint it. Gona grab this stick and and arrows and see if I can shoot one for supper tonight. Anybody want to use it in a local 3D let me know. Long as u take this old fat hag of a wife ive got to and accidently dump her off anywhere then please come by. Jet me a message if it may sound like sumptin u wud want. We gota sell quick. got us a good deals on some lithium bundles. Talk to uns later

X~2.....i have owned three now. My first was a 90's model Pro force extreme. then in 2003 i went with the Razor TEC, now this year i am holding a Hoyt Vector 32". Love it!!

I only buy PSE...if not that, then Hoyt. I'm not much on Mathews...but they are good bows...just not for me. Their grips are way too big for my liking. For me, PSE fits me best and I like how they shoot. My favorite PSE's are the Revenge and for there single cam bows the Brute X.

I agree the hoyts are really smooth but I think hoyts are the loudest out of all the mainstream bows right now
Agreed. Dont believe I have shot a quiet Hoyt


highly disagree.. I shot the z7,z7 extreme, and several other Matthews bow including some bow tech and several other bows. and they were all louder then the hoyt the other bow I really like is the bow tech. I have the ramapage xt. and it is one of the quietist bows ive ever shot. my uncle has the dxt and its the loudest bow ive ever shot or have heard. but like been said over and over every bow is different in everybodys hand. and if I may say I don't think there is a bow on the market that even compares to the sypder. but that's just me. It also makes a big difference what things you put on the bow. you can make just about any bow quit if you really want to. but when I shot all of them all it was, was a sight, rest and pep sight and the bow I got what the quietist one I shot.

Do you do your own tuning ? I like hoyts , but I will not have a spyder . I have watched 4 be set up this year already and to get them tuned to our standards it takes a tremendous amount of cam lean . And the guys that have bought them are having some troubles with serving wear on that end . But I have shot a lot of hoyts and really like the bows , just not my cup of tea.
I don't do a lot of in depth tuning, so what do you mean when you say cam lean? I know what cam lean is, but are you say that you have to induce cam lean? And how do you do that?
